Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

We are pleased to announce that beginning this summer, all 2016-2017 academic school year Student Charlie cards will remain active through August 31, 2017. This will allow all students with an active Student Charlie card full access to the MBTA at reduced fares over the summer months.

Effective at midnight on June 30, 2017 all M7 Charlie cards and Student Stored value Charlie cards (s-Card) that are active, will both FUNCTION as a Stored Value S-Card, Giving Students the ability to load both their M7 and S-card with stored value (pay per ride) or a monthly pass at MBTA Fare Vending Machine(FVM) located at any MBTA subway station.

Medford schools is opting out of administering cards during the summer months when school is not in session. If a card is lost over the summer, there are no replacement cards and you will be responsible to obtain a new card.

Students! It is highly recommended that you use all the stored Value (pay per Ride) down to zero $0.00 before August 31, 2017 so you don’t lose any funds.

New M7 Cards will be available in the Business Office beginning September 2017 for the new School Year. Have a safe and happy summer vacation!

Athletic clinics include soccer, flag football, softball, swimming and more for ages ranging from 3 to adults. Hands-on programs introduce youth ages 5-14 to creative activities such as computing, filmmaking, Lego workshops, rocket-making and more.

Medford’s popular 6-week Parks Program is also returning, giving youth an opportunity to get outside and play from 9am-1pm each day from July 10 to August 18. This year, all activities will take place in a different single park throughout Medford each week, bringing all youth together in one location. Activities will include sports, games, crafts, and more and the park locations will be Harris Park, Barry Park, Carr Park, Tufts Park, Morrison Park, and Playstead Park. The Free Lunch Program will provide youth ages 18 and under with lunch at no-cost at five of the six locations. (There will be no free lunch at Playstead Park).

Residents are also invited to get out and cool off at Wright’s Pond and Tufts Pool which are scheduled to open on June 24.

“In the winter of 2017, over 1,300 people responded to a survey designed to gather feedback about what our community wants to see in a Recreation Program in Medford,” said Mayor Stephanie M. Burke. “We’re excited to incorporate this feedback into our summer program, and will be proposing during budget cycle a full-time Recreation Department for the fall of 2017 which will offer year-round programming and will further incorporate the important feedback from the community gathered in the survey.”

All information about Medford’s Summer Recreation Program can be found online at www.medfordma.org/summer or in the Recreation Guide which can be picked up at Medford City Hall, the Medford Family Network, the Medford Public Library, and at many other locations throughout the City.
